Abstract
At the University of Maryland we are developing high power gyroklystron amplifiers with properties suitable for driving future electron-positron colliders[1-2]. Our initial experiments have involved a sequence of six different two-cavity configurations operating near 9.87 GHz in the TE011 mode. The energy is derived from a rotating beam in 425 kV, 80-200 A, 1 μs pulses. With velocity ratios near one, the studies have culminated in peak powers approaching 24 MW with efficiencies and large-signal gains of 33% and 34 dB, respectively. In the following paragraphs we describe the final two-cavity experiment and summarize our initial investigation into advanced configurations.
